Through the Purple Haze Challenges Day 5

We're on Day 5 of the week long Birthday blog hop for Through the Purple Haze Challenges. Hard to believe we are a year old, but we are and it has been a blast!!


Each day we have been sponsored by a wonderful company and today we are sponsored by Ike's Art, a wonderful company that I just recently heard about and am so thrilled they gave our Design Team a few images to work with.






The image I got to work with was the Peacock. I decided to go with an "untraditional" peacock color and colored my images with soft browns and blues. I used Copic markers to color and I really liked how soft looking it turned out. Hope you like it too!



All the papers and flowers are from my stash.

NOW!! MORE ABOUT THE BIRTHDAY!
Happy Birthday Through the Purple Haze Challenges!! Anita, Fiona, and all the girls are putting on a week long party with lots of prizes!!

This is Day 5 of the birthday celebration week and every day this week we have a birthday blog hop for you.  We will be finishing up on Sunday. If you missed any of the earlier blog hops, you may want to go back and take a look because Anita and Fiona are giving away blog candy for commenting. There is a short blog hop each day to help us celebrate. In addition to our usual weekly prize, we are giving away a blog candy prize for COMMENTING!!   YOU MUST USE THE WORD BIRTHDAYSOMEWHERE IN YOUR COMMENT!! So please leave a comment on each daily challenge blog. The more comments you leave the more chances you have of winning the blog candy prize for the WEEK!

And all of us participating in the blog hops would love to see your comments along the way for each day of this birthday week! And some of the Design Team girls are giving out a prize of their own just for commenting on their blog this weeklong party!!

Yes, I'm giving a prize!! I will be giving out a prize of digi images from one of the week's sponsors, too, just for commenting on my blog this birthday week! There is a small catch though. In your comment, you must use the word PURPLE!!  haha, now that's not too hard since the challenge is THROUGH THE PURPLE HAZE CHALLENGES!!  I will randomly select a winner from all the comments left on my blog this week and will pick the winner on July 23rd so you have plenty of time to comment!!  DON'T FORGET TO USE THE MAGIC WORD....
(SEE ABOVE)!!

When you enter our Anything Goes challenge, you will be so glad you did!! Each day of the week, we are being sponsored by a different company. So there are 7 sponsors with 7 prizes given out!! How wonderful is that??? And one of our sponsors is giving away a free digi image to every one of our entrants. So don't miss a day or you miss out!!
If you started hopping from the beginning, you should have arrived here from the amazing Katrine.
If you have randomly found yourself here, you may want to start at the beginning of the hop so you don't miss anything!! The entire list is below.
From here, you need to go back to Through the Purple Haze Challenges and leave a comment saying you've completed the hop and don't forget to use the secret word! (hint: up above). I hope you've enjoyed today's hop.
